DOHA – Qatari prince Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani refused to meet members of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) on Wednesday.
Two JIT members reached Doha on Tuesday to record the statement of the prince but he refused to meet them at Pakistan embassy, stating that he would only meet them at his office.
According to details, two members of the JIT were in Dubai to record the statement of the Qatari prince with regard to the Panama Leaks controversy involving Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
However, the prince refused to meet the members of the JIT at the Pakistani embassy. Thani said that he would only meet the JIT members at his office.
According to reports, two JIT members, Brigadier Kamran from Military Intelligence (MI) and Irfan Naeem Mangi from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrived in Doha to record the prince’s statement.
The Express Tribune reported via its sources that Prince Jasim said he would be happy to welcome the Panamagate JIT members at his residence and would provide all the relevant details regarding his family’s business association with the Sharif family.
Earlier on June 22, the JIT had written a letter to the prince to appear before it at the Pakistan High Commission in Qatar and record his statement. It had strictly advised him not to bring his lawyer and accountant with him during the investigation on June 29 or 30, 2017, whichever date suited him.
